    Installation: Common Ground (2014)

    Common Ground is an installation and performance piece created by John Cino. It is centered on Whale Song Improv which incorporates live musicians with recorded Humpback Whale song emanating from “Song Wave” a sculpture which projects audio. During Whale Song Improv live musicians scattered throughout the performance space enter into a musical dialog with the whale recording.
    As the pivot point of the performance Whale Song Improv is preceded by a soundscape which incorporates a variety of human speech in multiple languages broadcast throughout the space creating an interaction between sound and sculptural forms. Portions of the human recording include recitation of Herman Hesse’s “Siddhartha” and a multilingual peace chant.
    Following Whale Song Improv the live musicians perform a short concert of their own material choosing to fit into the “Common Ground” theme of interrelatedness.
    Each performance of Common Ground is unique based on the space and the musical cast. Segments have been performed in a variety of locations from churches and art galleries to concert venues. The entire pieces have been performed twice in different locations.
